This weekend, select HBO channels will be free to all DISH Network subscribers. According to information released by the company, channels 303, 304 and 305 will be available from September 17 – 20.
The three HBO channels available for free preview are HBO West, HBO2 West and HBO Family.
DISH customers can also expect to see movies such as Couples Retreat, The Time Traveler’s Wife and Terminator Salvation.
DISH Network periodically promotes some of their premium channels by offering them free for a weekend or sometimes around a holiday.
I don’t subscribe to any of DISH Network’s premium channels since I do not watch a lot of television these days (too busy working!) and what I do watch is usually on The Discovery Channel, The History Channel or one of the other educational channels.
However, I do usually take a look at the programming guide to see what is scheduled during these free preview weekends to see if there is anything that interests me. I usually end up recording a movie a two on my DVR to watch at a later time.
For others who may be more interested in the premium programming, this an excellent opportunity to check out some of the HBO offerings and see if they are to your liking.
